Has it already been a year since Prince William and Kate Middleton got hitched? It will be on Sunday, April 29, and we’re going to swig a glass or two (or three) for the royal couple. More than anything, this last year is when we completely fell in love with Kate and her winsome style. Seriously, the woman never fails to put her best fashion foot forward. More than anything, she puts in a lot of thought into the political context of her clothes, which is always appreciated. Remember when she wore Canadian designer Erdem Moralioglu while visiting Canada? Or that fab red Maple Leaf hat by Lock And Co. on Canada Day celebrations? Smart moves, gurl. And they — along with her gracious personality — have only served to win her more fans.
There have been other amazing fashion moments by her, through this first year of her becoming royalty. That pale pink shimmering Jenny Packham on her first official engagement was a total hit. And that incredibly sexy black velvet Alexander McQueen dress for the Sun Military Awards? In fact, Packham and McQueen have emerged as her favorite designers — other than Reiss, Issa and Irish designer Orla Kiely, for slightly more informal occasions. As far as Jenny Packham goes, we’re total fans of the silver, one-shouldered Grecian gown and the yellow, summery frock that Kate has worn on different occasions. With McQueen you can’t beat the second white dress she wore for her post-wedding celebrations.
So, in celebration of her royal style and of her impending one-year anniversary on Sunday, we’ve compiled an epic gallery of Kate’s top 25 looks. It was a tough job, but somebody’s got to do it. But we also want you to get involved. We’ve got a numbered list of all the 25 looks right below, in order of our preference. Go through the list (you won’t be sorry) which is linked to the corresponding picture in the gallery. The gallery is also numbered from 1-25 in case you want to go straight to it. Below it, we’ve got ourselves a poll of the top 15 of that list. We’d love for you to vote and tell which is your favorite. We’ve even got the designers and milliners down for every outfit, so have a ball, click away and vote, vote, vote!
